LAUNCESTON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 28 February 1842

LAUNCESTON RACES. The races commenced on Tuesday, and ter minated on Friday, having afforded most ex cellent amusement, ' Tlie course was nume rously attended, and patronised by many of the elite who have never before appeared as public patrons of the turf. The weather was most delightful, the racing particularly interesting .and exciting, and the jn'ob-ocracy remarkably quiet and well-behaved, notwithstanding that assigned servants and ticket-of-leave men were generously permitted to be upon the .course, con trary to the instructions of former yearN. Not a single accident occurred of the least conse quence, and nothing took jpltce that could operate prejudicially to the enjoyment of the sports. Large sums, of. money have changed pockets, but we rather think it has been from lb.e right. pocket, to the left, or ,vici versa', for notwithstanding that upon' .some raises an im mensity of money was won and lost, upon the whole, matters were pretty squarely balanced, ' ?

THE MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 March 1842

THE UIABEETS, There has been a little stir in the grain market since our last publication. Svdney papers have been received announcinga rise in price three, to 10s. 6d. per bushel. Our government have called for tcnde-is ror 30,000 bush els, to be closed on the 16th March. It does not appear what has occasioned this rise in price, nor can we arrive at any conclusion upon the matter. The farmers arc beginning to cheer up at this intelligence, and are hold ing out in hopes of a further advance. The Colony would be much bcncfiltcd at this particular crisis by a rise in the price of grain ; many settlers whose affairs are in a slate of embarrassment would be completely re lieved, and a reaction ivould take place also amongst the mercantile community.

On Thursday the Adjourned Meeting of the Colonists, invited by the Chamber of Commerce was held in the Town Council Room, to take into further consideration the financial position of the Colony, John Mor phett, Esq., in the Court.

THE FIRE IN THE TOWER OF LONDON. (Fwtlitr Particulars.)

POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 7 March 1842

poetry. ; EVENING THOUGHTS, I love to hear tbc murmuring deep. Dash 'gainst the pebbled shore; I love to watch o'er nature's sleep— And silently adore. 'Tis then events pass'd through the day Spring Ireshly to my view ; Void of the colourings false and gay, Which busy fancy drew. 'Now, twilight, wish her mantle grey. Gives place to sable night, And Cynthia wends her only way And sheds her bcautious light. Now busy man his toil resigns, And seeks in balmy rest, Fresh strength to aid those deep designs, That till his labouring breast. Come then sweet sleep and gently press, Tliy hand across my brow Let watchful angels guard and bless And hover round me now. — Fantiik.
